The Wine War: La Rioja, Spain
La Batalla del Vino is a whole new take on the traditional water fights. At the end of June each year thousands of locals (and quite a few guests), gather together in La Rioja to essentially drench one another in gallons of red wine. The origins of the Festival started in the 13th century when the Haro had to officially mark the property lines between them and their neighbors in Miranda de Ebro. It was necessary for this to occur annually, as well as every first Sunday of September, or else Haro would become a part of Miranda de Ebro. The tradition evolved over the years and at some point, people started throwing wine at each other to signify the marking of the property. The tradition earned the name “War of Wine”, which in 1965 was changed into “Battle of the Wine”-or Batalla del Vino en Haro as the locals call it.
The Galapagos Islands: Ecuador
Some of the rarest creatures in the world call the Galapagos Islands their home. The endangered giant tortoise and other animals that are close to extinction live on the islands, somewhat ensuring their safety. The abundant and varied wildlife that exists above and below the waves at the Islands are a draw to anyone with a sense of exploration/adventure. Here you can snorkel with sea turtles, hike with flamingos and explore the Sierra Negra Volcano. If you are a wildlife or nature enthusiast you will find a trip to these islands to be an experience of a lifetime.
The Great Barrier Reef: Australia
From the warm waters of the gigantic coral reef to the native sea life, you will be in awe of all that there is to experience at the Great Barrier Reef. With more than 1,400 miles of coral reef, it is considered to be the largest natural occurrence of its kind in the world. It is home to 2,000 species of fish, 4,000 species of mollusks, 380 species of coral, 500 different varieties of seaweed and home to six of the seven species of sea turtles known to exist on earth.
